The leader of the Mountaineering expedition to Mount Analogue - " Father Sogol " is the word " Logos " spelled backwards. In other words the Logos leads you to the summit of the mysterious mountain that unites Heaven and Earth.
The word " Heaven " means pure intellect while " Earth " is sensory perception according to the Allegorical writings of Philo Judeas of Alexandria.
I have continued the story of Mount Analogue started by Rene' Daumal who died while writing this book as it simply ends in mid-sentance. No one has made an attempt to continue the story until 1994 and I did not finish the story so that someone else could pick up the pen for Rene' Daumal and Arthur von Boennighausen some day.
Google my name and Mount Analogue to read my continuation of this story.......
Arthur von Boennighausen
Know who is Fellini? Castaneda? Joseph Campbell? if yes, then by all means, this is for you.
If you are interested in the path, this has much more substance than most new-agy disgusting and lame bland cookies.
The author did not finish the book, he died. It is up to you to "complete" it.
